We've got a question about the objectives.

Eradicated a disease was eliminated
Place 7 quarantines in faded cities was eliminated
We've completed all searches

WE HAVE OPENED ALL OF THE BOXES.

So they only objective left are destroy to military bases and cure 3 diseases. We only have on military base and no stickers so we'll have to add another base for Nov.

Do we get another objective in November? (just yes or no, please)
Do we need to add another objective back in?


THANK YOU!

Re: SPOILER - Finished October and have opened everything - objectives question
Yes, you will receive new objectives (avoiding being any more specific as requested).

If you've completed all the searches, you should have had instructions to open boxes 6 and 7 at some point. There's two additional objectives and other stuff in box 7.

Re: SPOILER - Finished October and have opened everything - objectives question
It would be great if you could tweak the subject line of this thread.

People who've not yet completed October won't know that...

...it's possible to have opened everything by then.

We've finished the game...

You do not receive a new objective if you've opened all the boxes by October (which we had).

Since we had 2 objectives and needed 3 to win, we added the eradicate disease objective back in the game and added a second military base (we only had one left on the board). It worked mostly.

I am pretty sure we broke the game, there needed to be more objectives overall because we ran into this issue twice where we only had 2 out 3 needed objective available on the board. We solved every search the same round we got it but still lost and that is an issue during the second half of the month.

Once you have opened everything, you should have at least 3 objectives left:

Those objectives are...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
- Cure 3 Diseases [Mandatory]
- Destroy 2 Military Bases
- Have at least 3 Vaccine Factories on the Board
- Vaccinate 6 Cities [Destroyed at end of game whether you Win or Lose]


It seems you may not have received one or more of your objectives if you opened everything and only have 2 at this point.

Benjamin's got this right. You should have the objectives he lists.

Here's what happened to us in November (2nd attempt):

- 6 cities vaccinated, so this objective was gone.
- no permanent military bases
- the construction expert character (whatever the English name is) dead

This means we're down to two objectives: cure 3 diseases and have the vaccine factories. Now what? We decided to skip this month altogether, looks like a frustrating hole in game design.

As discussed in your thread on the issue, there are lots of ways around this problem, some of which are impossible to lock yourself out of (the game can still kill you arbitrarily, but you can't be doomed from the start)

My recommendation would be to place a military base at each of the first two (instead of just one) locations drawn from the infection deck during setup.


But I understand your frustration.
